As with previous in-person conferences all the GSE UK Working Groups will be taking part in a multi stream agenda with several keynotes presented by industry leaders and plenty of time for networking at the conference dinner, lunches and refreshment breaks.

The virtual conference will be a similar format to the previous two years and will be held on Tuesday February 7th to Thursday February 9 2023 with the virtual sessions being held in eight virtual Zoom rooms.

Registration for the in-person conference and hotel bookings will open in June.

The Virtual Access to the In-Person Conference is Withdrawn

GSE UK Region regrets that it must abandon the virtual element of this years in-person conference.  This decision has not been made lightly and is due to the cost of setting up the infrastructure for the small number of virtual attendees that have registered.

This in no way affects the 400+ delegates that have registered so far for the in-person conference.

For those small number of virtual delegates, they will be transferred to the virtual conference in February 2023 where we hope to repeat many of the sessions from the in-person conference.

Mainframes are MAD – Modern, Adaptable, Diverse

M is for Modern: today’s mainframe is a thoroughly modern platform, ‘the core of trusted digital experiences’. Fast, secure and resilient, it’s the heart of so many organisations. The system of record, the mighty transactional engine, providing real-time analytics for personalized digital experiences.

A is for Adaptable: the modern mainframe is also an extremely flexible and versatile platform - from System/360 to z15 it has moved with the times and reinvented itself decade after decade. It’s a trusted hub for the latest digital transformations and so often the lynchpin of today’s cloud strategies.

D is for Diverse: from banking, insurance and financial markets to healthcare, retail, travel and utilities, the modern mainframe is put to work in a multitude of ways. From supporting the surge in online retail and transactions during the pandemic to supporting patient care and life-saving research.
